Fresh Cut Friday: Larkspur

Liz @ Rose Vignettes hosts Fresh Cut Fridays the first Friday of every month.  This month's flower:  larkspur.

Larkspur usually represents lightness or levity, so it is the perfect flower for summertime arrangements! Since we are traveling, I can't put together an arrangement of larkspur (or anything else) so I am cheating and letting Martha Stewart inspire me with some lovely summertime floral arrangements.

This is an arrangement of larkspurs (top) and delphiniums.  They are flower cousins, but there are some differences between the two.

I like the larkspurs and hydrangeas in the dark watering can.
Both photos above are from marthastewart.com

Simple hydrangeas in small red vases completed last year's July 4th arrangements at our lake cabin.


Please share your 4th of July floral creations with us @ Rose Vignettes.

Until next time...

  2. Love the larkspur. I wondered what part of your house had deep blue walls until I read the text. I'm glad you have a little time at the lake. Your red-white-and-blue arrangement looks great.

  10. eeewww! PRETTY! I love your photo of last years arrangement. Very lovely. I didn't do the Flower of the Month ... :( I waited to long and couldn't order them in time from the florist. Those are lovely inspiration photos from MS.

    Thank you so much for joining in for Fresh-Cut Friday! I know you know how much it means to me! :)
